David ChurchillMorrison & Foerster LLP

Morrison & Foerster LLP has broad capabilities across the entire array of government contract and public procurement work, but is perhaps best known for its bid protest practice. The team balances a busy contentious and transactional workload with a significant proportion of its mandates involving classified matters and sensitive FCA litigation, contract claims against the government in forums such as the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA), and M&A involving government contractors. The team is one of the first ports of call for emerging Sillicon Valley tech companies that rely on government contracts and grant funding, thanks to the firm’s strong presence in San Francisco and its wide-ranging expertise in IP protection and cybersecurity issues. Based in Washington DC, the department is jointly led by Alex Ward, Tina Reynolds and Kevin Mullen, the latter of whom specializes in bid protest litigation. Also recommended are David Churchill, government contracting M&A specialist Damien Specht and James Tucker, who focuses on bid protests.
